Money Won’t Buy Moderation in the Mideast

If billions of dollars have not bought PA support for a two-state solution in 20 years why should anything change now?

Money Wont Buy Moderation

Note: My colleague, Dr. Jonathan Spyer, was on a BBC show with a British Conservative member of parliament who insisted that Syria was a secular country and that none of the rebels were Islamists. This is the level of ignorance among many politicians and others in the West.

  1. The success of a healthy society in all its form…..well, in this case, it's not about the money.

  2. The PA will use this money for rockets and for corruption!

  3. I keep saying: Money won´t buy the peace process. These people are so arragant and naive about the ME problems… Just throwing money at it will not erase centuries of hatred and misstrust.. And yes, that money will ended up buying more bullets and more guns, and more bloodshed, and more death people… What a bunch of bull…… These politicians do not get the picture or simple do not understand English writing, Hebrew or Islam….

  4. If I were Prime Minister, I would say that there will be no more negotiations until the Palestinians has leadership who are actually interested in peace, Abbas clearly isn't. Also, Israel should take a stronger position by saying there will be no relinquishing of land, no return to the 67' borders, and Jerusalem will remain the capitol of Israel, and there will be no right of return of Arabs. Also, it should be made clear that the emphasis should be on the Palestinians making concessions instead of always pressuring Israel to make deals that will not work and weaken Israel. I would absolutely not negotiate with Kerry involved as he is trying to increase the scope of Obama's pro Arab agenda.
